HYPER-PIGMENTATION

Melasma . Dark Spots . Age Spots . Uneven Tone

Hyper-pigmentation happens when there is an overproduction or uneven production of melanin. It is a substance in the body that is responsible for color (pigment).

An example of hyperpigmentation is melasma (also known as chloasma). This condition is characterized by tan or brown patches, most commonly on the face. Melasma can occur in pregnant women and is often called the “mask of pregnancy;” however, men can also develop this condition.

Melasma frequently goes away after pregnancy. If you have melasma, try to limit your exposure to sunlight.
